Toolkit for enabling laws on community forestry

This Toolkit identifies common key questions that decision-makers can use to develop or review laws on community forestry. It consists of key points for inclusive, consistent reforms that are conductive to consensus and a series of questionnaires on ten key thematic areas aiming at providing a strong foundation for community forestry-related laws:

  1. Land and forest tenure
  2. Allocation of community forests
  3. Community internal governance
  4. Community participation and representation
  5. Community forestry management
  6. Access to markets
  7. Benefit sharing
  8. Conflict resolution
  9. Enforcement
  10. External support

This Toolkit is available in French from: Outil pour un cadre juridique favorable à la foresterie comunautaire.
